Activity-Stability-Transport Correlations of Iron-Molybdate-Based Catalysts in Oxidative Dehydrogenation of Ethanol


In this project, the correlations between activity, stability, and transport processes of iron molybdate-based catalysts for oxidative dehydrogenation of ethanol from renewable sources are explored. For this purpose, spatially resolved measurements of thermochemical state variables in the gas phase close to the catalyst are combined with detailed studies of the heterogeneous chemical reaction kinetics. On the basis of these experimental studies, numerical simulation models will be created to extend the understanding of the correlation between activity, stability and transport processes. This process understanding will support knowledge-based reactor design in future funding phases.
